|JNN07-Mystahr-Mtiful - Mystahr|
We all are nothing; and so we shall return. And from that emptiness grew Mtiful; meanderings through the field of experimental improv electronics. This album journeys into the physics of sound and its electronic behaviour, frantically trying to control that which lies beyond our touch. Like the chaos and unpredictability of nature, so this album shares of the deeper layers of life. Dare to dig the soil upon which we tread; dare to dive in the realm of a mad scientist mind called mystahr.

|JNN055 La fin du monde - Zondagmorgen|
So, about 1 and 3/4 years ago, I finished a super long ambient track for my Zondagmorgen (remember this?!) project, entitled La Fin du Monde. My intentions, at the time, were to release it though IMP. That never happened, and it's been sitting on my hard drive ever since. I pulled it out, on a whim, this morning and listened to it on the bus today. It's actually better than I remember, so I thought I would send it your way to see if you would be interested in including it in as an upcoming JNN r...

|JNN104 Dos caminhos do velho mundo - Z.O.T.E.|
Hailing from Braga, Portugal are Risco Corrosivo and Paranoid Doll. More industrial and more loudness after the delicate experimentalism will sooth your ears when in dire need of release of the chaotic. This very diverse album ranging from lo-fi to noise will certainly peak your interest. A ideia do Ã¡lbum âDos Caminhos do Velho Mundoâ consiste num roteiro de poesia de Portugal Ã RÃºssia, para cada paÃs um poema de um poeta dessa naÃ§Ã£o...

"De-Composizioni" was originally realized (but actually not distributed) as homemade demotape in 2006, almost in accidental circumstances. All tracks, based on few simple sounds and captured in a field recording, are composed, performed & recorded live during a studio session, and their structures are mostly improvised. La Ferrière Ensemble is: Imago Meccano: drum machine, pedal effects, elec guitars, accordion, concept LamieraChicken: elec guitar, pedal effects Onoco: pedal effects, bass guita...

|JNN079 Through fire walk with me - Alexander Kibanov & Norihito Kodama|
The second collaborative work from Alexander Kibanov to appear on Just not Normal and the shortest album thusfar to have appeared on JNN as well. But length never says anything about quality or its lacking off. Born June 6, 1992, Alexander Kibanov is an experimental music artist and composer from Antarctica. He has released under various pseudonymes (such as Earth Incubator, Headless Kamikaze, Illnathix) over one hundred of solo and collabarotive works (with many artists as diverse as GX Jupitte...

|JNN039 Harsh Mantra - Mystified - Mystahr (split)|
Split, a hype or just a way to get two artists together without a need to work together? Whichever, both Mystified as well as Mystahr show off in these tracks that vary from IDM to drone to noise. All this on a very well chosen theme to leave you with shivers after this intense listening experience.

|IMC02 of Places and Moments - various artists|
Of Places and Moments is a celebration of the art of field recordings. The tracks to be included utilized recordings from the Sounds Found Project, a repository of user-contributed field recordings. The source recordings were mangled, manipulated, abused and violated, in some cases beyond recognition, to create 18 distinctly different interpretations ranging from minimal drone, to noise, to electronica.

|JNN092 Art is a style of perception - Kris Cadwell|
Like Stream69, Kris Cadwell also revisits the JNN-catalog with a successor to his first album ‘Offerings’ (JNN070). Another beauty and indepth look into the sound of a visual artist exploring not in paint or color, but in tone. The diversity of this artist is remarkable; at times this feels very Boards of Canada when he can also change his cloth and create a beautiful deep field of drones and beatfree song...

|JNN042 My name is Marietta Cashman - Hannah M.G. Shapero|
From 1967 through 1970 my father, composer Harold Shapero, was director of the Brandeis University electronic music studio. The studio was equipped with a Buchla 100 modular synthesizer, which was at the time the state of the art. Though I was not a Brandeis student, but still in high school, my father allowed and encouraged me to work with the Buchla in the studio. I started working there when I was 14 and continued until I was 17...

|Daxscapes II - Danadax|
Whereas the material for DANADAX's first LP "DAXSCAPES I" spanned several years, the tracks on the project's second LP reach even further into the past and further into the future. Some of the cuts on "DAXSCAPES II" were made during the time DANADAX's first 2 EPs were recorded (back in late 2004). A heavy majority of the tracks on "DAXSCAPES II" were created during the same sessions for "DAXSCAPES I," (2005 - 2007) and even a few tracks on the second LP were created a year after the first was re...

“I live and make music in a flat. We’ve got a lot of traffic noise. I have wanted to use that for a virtual album for quite some time. The album was born by recording from midnight till seven in the morning. The album consists of live tracks. The first four are made entirely from the 7-hour recording (all encoded at 256kbs). The last track is a live recording with additional instruments (encoded at 192kbs)...

|JNN014 MindSpiral - The redundancy of suicide - Mindspiral|
MindSpiral is a series of collaborations between Mike Metlay and anyone who doesn’t hang up when he calls. This incarnation, mind6Spiral, resulted when Tim Walters (see e.g. JNN03) traded a night’s lodging (10 August 2008) for one hour of feeding audio from his laptop into Mike’s mixer, while Mike added his own sounds and a live audience on StillStream.com listened. It was a fair trade. Mindspiral Tim Walters

One of the prolific artists of late presents an album full of glitch, experimentalism and electronic rhythms and melodies. Not only does he create some awesome ambient; these experimental series are a treat to the ears.

[sic], the latest endeavor of soft noise/dark ambient blowhard, Controlled Dissonance, is an expression of minimalistic composition. Stripping down to the bare bones, Controlled Dissonance culled the sounds for this release exclusively from field recordings and found material on microcassette. These recordings were manipulated with a transcription device, a handful of effects pedals and a small arsenal of digital effects...
